FBI Director Wray: 'Raw' warning prior to Capitol attack shared multiple times with police

FBI Director Christopher WrayBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday described an ominous warning the night before the Capitol riots about the prospect for extreme violence as "raw, unverified uncorroborated information" — but claimed that the bureau's report was shared extensively with Capitol police and other authorities.

Wray said the report, which concluded that extremists were "preparing for war," was provided to authorities at the command level, distributed to its local Joint Terrorism Task network and also posted on a national electronic portal for review by law enforcement authorities across the country.

The FBI director's testimony before a Senate panel comes nearly a week after former U.S. Capitol Police chief Steven Sund told a separate Senate investigating committee that the intelligence never made it to him and others before the attack that left five dead, including Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick.

Sund acknowledged that the bulletin landed at the Capitol police agency's intelligence unit but was never forwarded.
